Beefless Stew

When I first became a vegetarian many years ago, one of the first recipes I adapted was my mother’s beef stew. Back then I used tempeh and browned it in oil. But once I discovered TVP chunks, I liked them even better. This stew is super low in fat and a complete meal in itself!

Wild Mushroom Risotto

Fresh and dried mushrooms combine for a woodsy mushroom-flavored risotto that needs no watching or constant stirring like traditional risottos. Instead, spend your time with your family, soaking in the tub, or reading a good book.

Thai Noodles

Hints: Rice vinegar and chili garlic sauce may be found in most supermarkets in the oriental section. One brand of chili-garlic sauce is made by Huy Fong Foods. It is quite spicy, so you may need to adjust the amount used according to your tastes. I use a small amount of sesame oil in this recipe for the unique taste it adds to foods. It may be omitted, if desired. This dish keeps well in the refrigerator and may also be served cold. This is great to fix on those busy evenings when everyone is eating at different times because it tastes best at room temperature.

      May has flown by and was very close to becoming the first month since I started this blog that I haven’t posted anything. The end of the school year is always busy for us, but because E was graduating, this May was more jam-packed than usual. But all the activity and anticipation came to a […]

    • The Slow Miracle of My Yoga Practice: Feeling The Whole in a Part
      I was introduced to the well-known Hindu fable The Blind Men and the Elephant at a very early age. At 3, my mother read me the 19th century version byJohn Godfrey Saxe from the pages of the Childcraft volume, Storytelling and Other Poems. This volume was part of a set my parents must have purchased when […]
